Airbus reshuffles supply chain management amid delays

PARIS, Nov 7 (Reuters) – Airbus is overhauling the management of its supply chain and speeding up assembly at a plant in China as it faces ongoing industrial problems at home in Germany, industry sources said.

Staff have been told that Klaus Richter, chief procurement officer, is stepping down from his post at the Franco-German-led company to “pursue other professional challenges,” they said.

The former BMW supply chain leader, who was credited with introducing carmaking strategies, will be replaced on an interim basis by the company’s operational head in China, Francois Mery.
